Total Plans to Use Artificial Intelligence to Cut Drilling Costs
Total plans to start a digital factory to tap artificial intelligence in a bid to save hundreds of millions of dollars on exploration and production projects, according to an executive.
Digital Data Drives HSE Behavioral Safety Program
Behavior-based safety is not a new concept nor is it new at Murphy Oil. But when Murphy launched its Safety Observation Program as a digital tool, it revitalized the way the culture of safety spread throughout the company.
Equinor Sets Sights on Natural Language Processing With Startup Nesh
New funding for a chatbot technology, or smart assistant, represents the latest development in the Norwegian operator’s drive toward digitalization.
Data as Prior/Innate Knowledge for Deep Learning Models
Rapid advances in deep learning continue to demonstrate the significance of end-to-end training with no a priori knowledge. However, when models need to do forward prediction, most AI researchers agree that incorporating prior knowledge with end-to-end training can introduce better inductive bias.
The Path to Artificial Super Intelligence
Dubbed the technology of the decade, AI has been the catchphrase on every futurist’s tongue. From customer support chatbots to smart assistants, AI has begun to transform numerous industry verticals.
Souped-Up Search Engines Wrangle Drilling, Completions Data
Fed by big data loads from big operators, a university consortium and software firm are each working to make upstream data access as quick and easy as a Google search.
$1 Million Gift From ConocoPhillips Will Enhance Data Science Offerings at University of Houston
Demand is growing at the University of Houston and others, from students who want to study data science; from researchers who produce, interpret, or otherwise work with reams of data; and from industry, which needs a data science-savvy workforce.
GHGSat Readies Launch of Second Emissions-Monitoring Satellite
The new satellite will build on the success of the company's demonstration satellite Claire, which has performed over 2,500 observations of oil and gas facilities as well as other natural and industrial sources of carbon dioxide and methane.
Integrating Geomechanical Data Optimizes Completions Design
This paper demonstrates how engineers can take advantage of their most-detailed completions and geomechanical data by identifying trends arising from past detailed treatment analyses.
Neural Networks Plus CFD Speed Up Simulation of Fluid Flow
High-fidelity 3D engineering simulations are valuable in making decisions, but they can be cost-prohibitive and require significant amounts of time to execute. The integration of deep-learning neural networks with computational fluid dynamics may help accelerate the simulation process.
DeepMind and Google: The Battle To Control Artificial Intelligence
AGI stands for artificial general intelligence, a hypothetical computer program that can perform intellectual tasks as well as, or better than, a human. AGI will make today’s most advanced AIs look like pocket calculators.
Harnessing Organizational Knowledge for Machine Learning
In collaboration with Stanford University and Brown University, Google explores how existing knowledge in an organization can be used as noisier, higher-level supervision—or, as it is often termed, weak supervision—to quickly label large training data sets.
